You might think that the Loop would have a grocery store. It doesn't. The nearest grocery is a Dominick's on Madison just west of the expressway. Luckily it's just a few blocks from Ogilvie Station. I bought salami, cheddar, bagels, and about half a gallon of half and half (the only size that was left).
I walked back to Ogilvie Station, where I had about 50 minutes to kill until my train was ready.
The best view at Ogilvie is from the Caribou Coffee looking out on Riverside Plaza. Never get stuck in their food court. It's just too depressing. I had the best cup of coffee I'd ever had at Caribou. Which is to say, I didn't feel like spitting it out. And for the first time I wasn't angry about their fake stone fireplace.
Forty-five minutes later I walked over to the depot and got on the northbound line. It was packed. Who goes home at 2:30 p.m.?
So here I am. The cat resents my presence, and I can't stop thinking about the things I needed to do at work. Maybe I should have some vodka. Is that good for a cold? Probably not.
